The new Mexican Liga is closer to its first season and has been a hot topic throughout the country. One of Mexico's iconic players said that nothing is going to change, outside of the name and the creation of the Copa in which teams from Primera Division and Liga de Ascenso will square off.
Cuauhtémoc Blanco, now playing for Dorados of the Liga de Ascenso, has weighed in and said that the New Mexican Liga MX will be exactly the same as how things were, but just with different name.
“I think is going to be more of the same, only the name is going to change, but everything will be the same," said Blanco of the new league.
Blanco, who played in seven teams in his country, plus Valladolid in Spain and the Chicago Fire, found just one interesting side of the new competition system: the creation of the Torneo de Copa, which he said will help the Liga de Ascenso teams in terms of competition.
“It will be in benefit of us and the fans of Primera A," he added. "In this they really did well because it will be good for the Liga de Ascenso teams to play against Primera Division’s teams”.
‘Temo’ has been always critic of the Mexican soccer authorities and has been a part of a number of debates with presidents and managers.
Now 39, Blanco had said Dorados will be his last team before pursuing a coaching career. The historic forward signed with Sinaloa in December after he wasn’t offered a deal to sign with any Primera Division team.
